The Small but Mighty Thyroid

Your thyroid is a small gland in the back of your neck, just below the center of your throat. This gland is small but mighty! It’s part of a network of glands within your endocrine system. This system regulates and coordinates many activities within your body to keep everything functioning correctly. Your thyroid manufactures hormones that regulate your body’s metabolism. It is also considered your metabolic center. The thyroid controls your body temperature, heart rate, and how fast calories are used from food.
